Newsletter 24th September 2019

Hi members,

September 24th Meeting

Well the first monthly competition of the season has happened and what a great evening it was, plenty of top level work was presented giving a great challenge to our judge John Scaife. John explained with detail his likes, and his thoughts on improvement of our images, I find these evenings have been the most valuable to improve my photography as I can learn from not only mine but from everyone’s images and of course love to see what everyone has been working on. I think everyone appreciated Johns constructive comments and it seemed to please many that the newer members are “nipping at the heels” of the more experienced members. I think it will be exciting to see how this season plays out.

Top work to all entrants particularly those who almost made the top rankings, keep at it, it can be done.

October 1st Meeting info

Next week we have a Lecture and practical evening let’s discuss and look at lenses their differing qualities and perspectives.

We will then take a look at “workflow”, what to do with every image post pressing the shutter, including storage, backup and the first steps of manipulation that benefit every image.

All future club meeting information will be added to our closed Facebook Group with personal invites to events being sent to you. Please check regularly on this Facebook Page for event activity. Happy snapping
